Lewis Hamilton: Valtteri Bottas won't want a gifted Formula 1 win

Mercedes drivers Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton set the pace in practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix on Friday, staying in position to secure the Formula One constructors' championship this weekend.

Brazil and the United Arab Emirates are the final two races of the season, the latter coming on November 25, eight months after the curtain-raiser in Melbourne.

Lewis Hamilton has said it is "likely" he won't continue in the sport if it expands to 25 races and would prefer it to be shorter than it presently is.

A street race in Vietnam will be added in 2020 and Liberty Media, the American conglomerate that now runs F1, is keen to expand their portfolio in America by adding multiple races. "I want to win". "That's very hard. Then you have to find a way of switching off and recovering at the same time".

Fresh from winning his fifth world title, Hamilton arrived for pre-race preparations at Interlagos in a tracksuit and denim jacket combination. The turnaround is so short, you start preparing for your next season often as soon as the season is done.

Even with these results, Ferrari only managed to outscore Mercedes by 11 points, so it will be extremely challenging for them to outscore them by at least 13 points in the Brazilian Grand Prix to take the constructor championship battle to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Ferrari has enjoyed the upper hand over Mercedes in recent races - outscoring its rivals by 12 points in the US and 11 points in Mexico - so it will require a better weekend at Interlagos if it is to take the battle to Abu Dhabi in two weeks' time. "We're trying to win", he told reporters.

Nelson, who is now losing to Republican Rick Scott by just 22,000 votes (about 0.26 percent), has not accepted defeat. The manual recount is more complicated and time-consuming, as it involves counting each of the ballots by hand.

Despite ruling out Red Bull's chances of victory on Thursday, Mexican Grand Prix victor Verstappen led the way on a 1m09.011s as he continued his run of impressive form having topped all three practice sessions at the last race.

"The team are not going to make that call", replied the Briton. That said, when you've won five world drivers' championships, you probably have carte blanche to dress as you like.

"Germany was especially painful, where Vettel could have won, but lost the full 25 points".

There is still the issue of the constructors' championship to settle and two grands prix. "This [the Constructors' Championship] is the most important thing".

Hamilton is hoping he can bounce back to competitiveness this weekend, after two races in which Mercedes have struggled for pace.
